The Bulgarian National Assembly is taking into consideration raising the VAT registration thresholds on April 21.  This is the first in a series of measures that will be introduced as part of economic measures to combat soaring prices while also enhancing business conditions in the environment. 


Bill No. 47-254-01-42 provides provisions to: 


1.Raise the mandatory annual VAT registration threshold in two phases to: 


  • Effective 1 January 2023 – BGN 100,000 (approx. EUR 51,300) 
  • Effective 1 January 2024 – BGN 166,000 (approx. EUR 85,000) 


Currently, the VAT registration threshold in Bulgaria is BGN 50,000 (roughly EUR 25,500) for all traders of taxable items, such as zero-rated supplies or financial or insurance services. 


2.Establish VAT registration and deregistration processes to take effect on 1 January 2023 and 1 January 2024, respectively. 


The primary goal of the proposed reforms is to reduce administrative and regulatory costs placed on micro, small, and certain medium-sized businesses, as well as natural persons engaged in independent economic activities.
